Guns N’ Roses Fans Busted In Argentina
March 24, 2010
Guns N’ Roses’ South American tour has been hit with more trouble – 12 fans were arrested outside a concert in Argentina on Monday night after reportedly trying to force their way into the venue.
The rockers caused controversy earlier this month when they cancelled a private concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the last minute – with fans reportedly storming the stage at the club in protest. Another gig in the country was scrapped when the stage at the Rio de Janeiro venue collapsed in stormy weather conditions.
And the band was at the centre of more problems at their Velez stadium gig in Buenos Aires on Monday after a number of fans tried to enter the venue without tickets.
Members of the crowd started throwing bottles, while cops used gas and rubber bullets to disperse the revellers, reports Blabbermouth.com.
The website reports at least 12 fans were detained by police.
And it wasn’t the only issue concerning the concert – after starting two hours late, frontman Axl Rose reportedly asked a translator to tell the audience to stop throwing items on to the stage.
Guns N’ Roses are currently playing an 11-date tour in South America, which will also see them perform in Ecuador, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia in April.
